Before I sign off for the weekend and enter my final prep stages for Borrowed, I have a beautifully inspiring styled bridal shower inspiration feature designed by Liza Bourkard with DBI Events [see DBI Event’s Capitol Vendor Spotlight here!]
This shoot is perfect for upcoming spring and summer weddings ~ as the pale pink, peach, & teal color palette is just total eye candy. Plus the vintage place settings and book details make for a beautiful summer garden bridal shower theme ~ or even an intimate wedding.
Romantic Pink & Teal Summer Garden Bridal Shower Design
Event Designer: Liza Bourkard of DBI Events
Paper Design: Little Bird Creative
Photographer: Paired Images
When we sat down to discuss this shoot we knew we wanted to do something feminine, Spring-appropriate, and utilize an outdoor venue. To challenge ourselves we decided to go with a pink color palette. Pink is a color that is really dictated by its shade – bubble gum pink can be childlike but fuchsia adds a pop of sophisticated color. Keeping our venue in mind we decided to stick with blush pinks and bring in color contrasts through other details.
More from Liza:
Our table scape consisted of irish linen with a custom runner (DBI Events), vintage blue plates, lots of crystal, and simply arranged flowers. I decided to use glass and crystal containers to let the table sparkle in the sunlight. I didn’t want to overwork the flowers as we were working in a garden-type of atmosphere – you have to be aware of your “space”. I used textured flowers in unique containers to create a look of playful romanticism. I used crystal candelabras along with carnation heads to function as place card holders.

I love love love the teal vintage place settings, with the flatware wrapped in lace! love!
Carina created gorgeous trellis-trimmed invitations to go along with our garden theme. She printed the invites in a peach color to bring in the pink tone without being matchy matchy.

beautiful pink, tangerine & teal drink display! Perfect for a bridal shower bar setup.
I have always wanted to incorporate household furniture into wedding design – this inspired the dresser bar. I love the color of this dresser – it’s neutral but with an impact. I used crystal candelabras and a theme-appropriate coffee table book to create varying height levels to properly display drinks. Carina designed custom labels for our pink lemonade to add an extra personal touch. We used limes as a color contrast to really highlight the pink.
And I don’t have to really say anything about Paired Images – these gorgeous shots speak for themselves. The girls are highly talented, have a great eye for composition, and were a huge help when we were setting up. They knew what would work in shots and what wouldn’t.
